The Department of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University has spent the 2020–2021 academic year celebrating the 70th anniversary of its becoming the first U.S. university to establish a nuclear engineering curriculum. It started in 1950, when Clifford Beck, then of Oak Ridge, Tenn., obtained support from NC State’s dean of engineering, Harold Lampe, to build the nation’s first university nuclear reactor and, in conjunction, establish an educational curriculum dedicated to nuclear engineering.
The department, host to the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, scheduled for April 8–10, now features 23 tenure/tenure-track faculty and three research faculty members. “What a journey for the first nuclear engineering curriculum in the nation,” said Kostadin Ivanov, professor and department head.
Since the magazine accepted its first advertising in 1960, nearly 40,000 ad pages have been purchased. Join the hundreds of nuclear-related vendors and organizations who make our magazine part of their annual business development strategy.
The magazine reports on the latest developments in the nuclear community, a large part of which concerns nuclear energy – in particular, the hundreds of units that are in operation or forthcoming around the world. Articles discuss plant operations, maintenance and security; policy and legislation; international developments; waste management and fuel; and business and contract award news. Also covered are research and nonpower applications of nuclear science and technology, including nuclear medicine, food irradiation, and space nuclear applications. In addition, the popular ANS News, which contains information for and about ANS members, has been incorporated into the monthly magazine.
